From the Author
Mum's the Word: About Mums, For Mums, By Mums
This is a book about Motherhood – our introduction to it, our methods of coping with the ups, downs and side-swipes, and our relationships with our own Mothers. There are 12 stories written by Mothers, about Mothers, and for, all the Mothers who have ever had doubts, looked back and realized it was sometimes harder, more fun, more challenging and even more rewarding than they ever imagined possible at the time. It’s about how motherhood has changed and moulded us all.
Some of the stories include meanderings on how things have changed from being a young Mother living in the middle of nowhere in the 1970’s to another Mum’s tale of going from the high powered corporate environment and suddenly finding babies don’t understand schedules. There are stories about bonding (or not) with Mothers, stepmothers and Mother-In-Law. Stories about letting go of your children – at whatever age they go, and for whatever reason. There are contributions from single Mothers, working Mothers, grandmothers, and daughters.
This book takes a light and heavy look at Motherhood – the journey, the challenges and the rewards. For all Mothers – at whatever stage of your journey, you’ll laugh, cry, chuckle, and ponder over the words shared in these pages, and most of all, you’ll find some of your own story here too – guaranteed.
